Irfan says it means “broken pieces,

reunited,” as we rearrange picnic tables

linearly. We eat: polynomials aligned

between paper plates. Our sums

ask for seconds then run down

to the pier. Flip-flopped variables.

Playing cards appear; I keep score,

tallying different equations.

And Math it is! You just took me back to high school 🙂

Oops, I meant to take you to the beach with my family. Hopefully you have fond memories of high school. Thanks for your comment, Shailaja.

If algebra had been this fun in high school I may have paid more attention 😉

I liked algebra. It was calculus and geometry I found very boring. Thanks for your comment, C.C.

Who would have thought a family day out could be so mathematical!? I love this!

🙂

Totally cute play on words! Those pictures are great, too so glad you included them!

Thanks for saying so, Jen. I almost didn’t.

Great Nate, really enjoyable “maths”. 🙂

Thanks, Claudette!

omg ‘flip-flopped variables’ *keels over dead* Love this.

Glad you liked it, Kymm!

I like your creative, math-y take, and the photos are so joyful.

Thanks for saying so, Marcy. That’s what I was hoping to add by including them!

Who knew algebra could be so fun? I love this: “Flip-flopped variables.”

That bottom picture with all of us jumbled up inspired that line. We were too busy having fun to stop and pose for a picture.

I love this so bad! And such a cute family. Well done sir. Well done.

Thanks, K. Renae, just 3 more weeks till I’m with them again.

Love, love, love. And it’s about Ludington. Sigh. You have my heart.

Hopefully i captured how it feels to be up there. I know you understand how peaceful Ludington is. Thanks for the comment, Meg!
